Installing VirtualBox Guest Additions in CentOS 6.5

I had some difficulties installing the guest addition in my centos 6.5 VM so after upgrading to VirtualBox 4.3.8 I searched a bit and found an article that pointed me in the right direction.

Everyone points you to click on the Devices menu and then on Insert Guest Addition CD…

I then needed to:

sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media

and I could then
cd /media

Since I already had the dkms module installed everything worked as expected.
